As you strive to reach your goals, it’s inevitable that you’ll encounter setbacks that may threaten to deter you. Fortunately, your mindset is an incredibly powerful tool, and by mentally conditioning yourself for success, you will be better equipped to overcome any challenges you face.

Since completing his nine-year career playing professional basketball in eight different countries, Dre Baldwin has founded his company, Work on Your Game Inc., authored 33 books, and delivered four TEDx talks. Early in his career, however, success did not come easily – it was through his perseverance and mental resilience that Dre achieved his dream of playing basketball professionally. In Episode 132 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, Dre discusses what his journey has taught him about mindset and shares several actionable insights, including:

  • Why the right mental conditioning is crucial for overcoming setbacks, and steps to take in order to increase your resilience capacity
  • A common misconception about discipline, and why having the right structure in place is actually the key to achieving the discipline needed to reach your goals
  • The power of leveraging other people’s strengths when it comes to building your own confidence and finding solutions for problems you may be facing
